A common trend seen on college campuses today (especially Temple University), is a patch-pin combination. Students have been seen to provoke their peers with a DIY-format of self-expression. Pins could be inter-changeable accents to any color combo, while patches help add a bit of a vintage look.

My recommendation for a great backpack is the Herschel Supply Co. Little America Backpack. This bag is perfect for any size laptop, with its sleek, suede lining to keep your computer secure. It is also has a pull-back drawstring to make sure none of your books fall out. For such a great bag, you can find it on the company’s website here.

One thing we know about our readers: most of them are students. Whether you’re majoring in pre-med or French, every person needs their own backpack to carry their school supplies. While back-to-school shopping may be over for many, backpacks are just as seasonal as your purses or shoes.

Whichever way we see it, we can’t deny that backpacks are “in”, and here to stay. From those of you sticking to your reliable JanSport’s, or even your Valentino nylon camouflage backpack, we need to have our bags on at all times. For any abled urbanite, he or she needs to have their lives “on-the-go”. If we need to sleep at a friend’s or just keep a phone charger, backpacks are the main component in the “urban jungle”.

Within the past few years, trendy backpacks have become a staple to any successful outfit. People such as hip-hop enthusiasts find solace in brands such as Sprayground, with their provocative graphics tying into the newest pairs of Nike Foamposites. Indie-types may see them as just a solid, abstract form of expression with a brand such as Herschel Supply Co. Herschel is a well-known brand in its own right, meshing a classic look with a high quality material for a long-lasting piece.
